An almost life-long musician (for 52 years now), I've pieced together my own personal recording studio and have a few projects in the works. After 20+ years of drumming in live settings (largely cover bands), I've developed a need to try my hand at producing something of my own, on my terms, and from my head. If you've listened to some of my stuff, you've probably figured out that it could get weird. I have a diverse interest in vastly different aural presentations and music. I've taken on the enormous task of teaching myself piano & synths. I'm no stranger to either, but I'm not in any way proficient at neither. I began playing bass guitar at age 14 (we don't need to talk about 4th - 6th grade clarinet, do we?). After a while I figured out that I was not going to be a great guitarist. I was okay with very basic root note stuff, but that's where my progression stalled. I found I was better with a stick in each hand, hitting things. I would love to try and get joint project teams going on this site. These would be teams of contributors working on pieces together, constructed only of material found on Freesound (in accordance with licensing restrictions and including attributions, of course). Pieces could be sound atmospheres, horror movie sounds, or something comic / humorous, etc. All pieces could be posted to a joint account team page. The team with the most downloads after a predetermined length of time, wins (bragging rights). Let me know what you think of my work so far, or my idea, or anything else that's on your mind. CREATE!
